    Default Sri front grille

    This may be the dumbest question ever on here so apologies in advance.

    Will the front grille from an Sri fit a non Sri?

    I have a prefacelift Club model and I really don't like the front grille. I am not a massive fan of the Irmscher front grilles but I like the look of the Sri grille.

    So if I get a front grille from a prefacelift Sri will it fit straight onto my car?

    Is it easy to remove the existing grille and fit the replacement? Are they clipped on screwed in or what?

    Thanks

    assuming you're talking about the grille in the bonnet, yes it is a piece of cake to remove & replace, simply a matter of unscrewing 8 self tapping screws, remove the old grille, insert the new grille & replace the self tappers. i found that i needed to paint the metalwork behind the grille matt black with my new grille, shown left, as it showed through.

    if you're talking about the actual bumper, its not complicated, couple of self tappers in the wheel arches, 4 plastic rivets where the lower bumper fixes to the bodywork just below & in front of the engine & something similar where the bonnet closes, then you just give the whole bumper a sharp tug & off it comes.

    there should be a few how2's on here giving more details & even some pics
